Over 180 Scouts made the trip to Bonaly for the annual Pentland District Brass Monkey Camp. Despite the constant Saturday rain and cold temperatures, everyone had a great time taking part in all the activities.

The Scouts took part in a Monopoly-themed activity where they had to go round 36 activities that were on their board to earn either a house, hotel or skyscraper depending on how well they did. Activities included minefield, space hopper racing, sushi sweeties, and a bush tucker trial. The winning team came from the 100th troop and received a special Brass Monkey hat for their efforts.

A huge well done to those who were responsible for planning the camp and making sure that the event ran so smoothly throughout the weekend. Also, well done to the nearly 60 adults and 10 Explorers who were there to help with running activities, cooking meals and keeping all the Scouts safe and happy.
